Housing Timeline for New Students

First year and transfer students are guaranteed housing on the St. John's campus. First year students will be assigned to either St. Thomas or St. Mary Hall. Transfers will be placed in an appropriate location according to their year in school and based on availability. Please use the following steps:

1. Pay Enrollment Deposit

In early April, or within a week of paying your deposit (it can take a week for all the data transfers to finish), the Admissions Office will send an email, which will include CSB/SJU email address information. CSB/SJU email address log in information is used to log into the Housing Portal.

Priority Deadline: May 1


2. Apply for Housing Online (April 1 - June 1)

To apply for housing on-campus, please navigate to the Housing Portal. To access your account you will need to use your CSB/SJU email username and password. The username is typically your first initial, middle initial, and last name.
